"Under Andy's leadership and industry expertise, Bravo has enjoyed record ratings and an increase in original programming while attracting the most affluent and educated audience in cable entertainment," said Berwick.

In 2005, Cohen was awarded a Peabody Award for his role as an Executive Producer of the TRIO documentary "The N Word" and another in 2008 as an Executive Producer of "Project Runway." He has been featured regularly on The Today Show and Joy Behar. In 2009 he appeared on the cover of The Advocate and was profiled in New York Magazine, The New York Times, the LA Times, and Entertainment Weekly. In June 2010, he was listed as one of TV Guide's "25 Most Influential People in Television." OUT Magazine put Cohen on their OUT 100 List in 2008, and named him "hottest blogger of 2006" in their annual "hot" issue and in 2007, Cohen was named one of Multichannel News' "40 Under 40" innovative and formative executives at work today.
